fonYou: Carrier-Grade Cloud Telephony

fonYou, a global technology company based in Barcelona, has confirmed its first agreement with a mobile network operator.

In Cape Town, South African operator Cell C has announced the launch of its "MyTools" service a custom-made version of fonYou's Cloud Telephony Service built on fonYou's OMT-9000 technology platform. Confirmation of the deployment is an important milestone for fonYou as it seeks to cement its position as a leader in the integration of Web 2.0 and mobile services.

The introduction of fonYou's Cloud Telephony Services allows operators to offer their end customers over-the-top Web 2.0 services such as an online activity register, smart address book, advanced call control features or visual voicemail, accessible through web and mobile phone browsers as well as smartphone and Facebook applications.

Through these services, customers can finally take total control of their mobile number. Service features include the ability to blacklist unwanted calls or SMS, set up different voicemail greetings for different callers, manage contacts and messages online, forward voicemails as emails, or set up call forwarding services at different times of the day.

fonYou's OMT-9000 is the only carrier-grade technology platform available today that enables mobile operators to compete with the new generation of aggressive, cloud-based models such as Google Voice, Skype or WhatsApp.
